[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This fungi was growing in the garden of the cottage we rented at Myrbacka, near the town of Älmhult. Älmhult's claim to fame is that it is the home of Ikea! I think this fungi may be Amanitas pantherina, (thanks to cafecream and wallhalla15) but i'm not sure. One for extramundu!
Hope you like the photo,

A good shot it seems to be a
Golmotte or reddening or vinous Amanita, Amanita rubescens.

I think J.Louis gave you a good ident for this one, at first sight seems to be an Amanita Rubescens.
Although the short DOF does not offer a claer contour of the fungi, you have nice colours and details, and a steady hand at 1/25. Thanks for sharing and for the dedication.
Regards, Felipe.
